"Let's say that I'm really—" he touched the cocked hat with a flourish of his weapon "—a pirate." "Just one thing 1 want to know," said John Henry. He tagged wearily in hia saddle. "Then I'll shut up. Where did you have that combination? We searched you." "Not very thoroughly," said the shadow. "You missed the pistol, for on« thing. But the combination wasn't there. The combination wa& here." "Where's he pointing?'* asked John Henry, straining forward, "His mouth!" cried Sin. "That's right," chuckled Trim. "My dentures are false. No one thinks of that. Whoever heard of owning a set of false teeth that look worse than real ones? But they're as false as that story about Mr. Robottom, which 1 consider pretty adequate for the spur of the moment." He peered lo sec the extent of the Conovers' chagrin and drew back satisfied. "Enjoy the sweep of the joke," he commanded. "Others among my foes have been fooled and appreciated it." "Mr. Trim," said John Henry earnestly. "We are not your [ocs.' "Nonsense. You've been a complication since Saturday night— although a curious one. It was an accident that Barselou learned we were in the game at all. But then to have you gullible innocent mistaken for us—I call that highly amusing." "We? Us?" questioned John Henry tentatively. "My daughter Faye and I, 1 plied Trim blandly. "My name i Jordan—if names mean anything But don't break the habit of week end, 1 beg you." "Oh!" gasped Sin. "Then she— then we—" "Haven't you noticed the (a mil resemblance—the Jordan nose? It's turned up at the world- pushed into that position by generations of well-applied thumb i. Yes, it was Faye who insisted the cottages be switched so she could go through your belongings (or this precious combination while they were being moved. Gayner, poor tumbler, didn't *uspect • thing—he was that eager to search your stuff himself. But he searched the clothes after Faye had finished id it was he who mussed them so eplorably." Sin trembled with rage. "You illed himr "Relax, honey," said John H«n- y uneasily. He sensed thai his ife was shivering, although the ark of the new day was not chilly etween the protective canyon vails. He edged his horse closer o hers so that their legs touched otnfortingly. | Skull wai Ihe point and w« wer< through with you." "Just how," asked John llemy, "did you know An>;lm had wandered huo our cottage in the lirsl place?" "Careless Anglin," clucked the man with Ihe gun commiserating- ly, "bafllcd by so little. Faye was waiting for him in the cottage next to jours. When she saw you turn on all your cottage lights, curiosity got the better ol her. She crept over »nd—behold!—Anglin has left his signature by your donl door. A handprint in blood. She immediately phoned me in the bar.

"I,el'« get k all over vilh." » • * INHERE yt-At enough light lor him lo see Trim raise the short fat evolvor menacingly. "No rush," vas the amiable reply. "I prefer o board the Queen by daylight. 3atselou is an excellent shot." He settled back on his steed luxuriously. His proud voice said, 'Faye's taking you to the Bar C ,n the first place was impromptu, Conover — but it shows her fiair. That way she was able to separate you from youc wife and go through' the only clothes of yours she hadn't inspected — the clothe* you were wearing the night before.** "Then it was Faye, after all. I thought Barselou — " "Barselou wasn't even aware that you were at his ranch at all." The chuckle out of the darknesa was malignant. "Yes, Faya -is ndept. She went to the Bar C Ranch tonight lo discover the starting point for the route I gained from Gayner. It was no error—her releasing you two. We didn't suspect you knew Walking quiz contest. My mind leaped instantaneously to the obvious—I would gain entree to your company by being the Bry-Ter Toothpaste man. If you had checked closely, you'd have found that Bry-Ter pays its bills from Los Angeles and does not provide a SL Christopher for its travelers." Trim peered up at the jagged streak of sky. It was lightening, with faint points of gray and pink. "Forward march!" he commanded cheerfully. "But this time we'll reverse the order. You, Conover, will go first—and 1 will bring up the rear. After you, please." He reined the bay horse aside lo allow John Henry lo pass. "I am counting on you, Conover. I count on you to realize that your first foolish move will send a bullet through your wife's spine." The smoke was strong now. The horses lifted their heads. From near at hand sounded a soft whinny. "Right at the next one," the wizened pirate* ordered. They clip-clopped around the last corner. A man lay beside the fire, his big body swathed in a blanket. The regular rise and fall of a bass snore betrayed th« depth sleep. "There ra Mr. Barsclou," Trim said, his bad teeth « gleeful display. "Signed, sealed and delivered." He gestured with the pistol, up Ihe canyon, toward the shadows. "And there is the Queen."
